Privately owned by Anita Davis and intended for public use, The Bernice Garden is located at the southeast corner of Daisy Bates Avenue and South Main Street in downtown Little Rock. Created to celebrate the community and host events, the garden also fosters neighborliness and a sense of pride in the area.
The Bernice Garden Farmers’ Market (Sundays, 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM April through November) offers an open community space for local growers to sell sustainably raised fruit, vegetables, nuts, berries, flowers, and herbs, as well as cheeses, prepared food and other goods to downtown Little Rock residents, businesses, organizations and visitors.
The garden features permanent and temporary sculptures created by Arkansas artists and sponsored by The Bernice Garden Sculpture Fund. Mosaics, rock formations, the hand-crafted sign and additional art installations add to the multi-staged development plan for the space.
Grab a bite to eat at any of the neighborhood restaurants, stores or markets, meet your friends and family under the canopy, and enjoy the beauty and excitement of a revitalized neighborhood at The Bernice Garden.
Or rent the garden for weddings, receptions, dinner parties, concerts or any celebration – it’s a beautiful, natural fit for special occasions.
